    I tried to count. That's about 35 birds in that photo? I'm not really visualizing 104 chickens very well...

    the others were in the back of the pen , it is a pretty big pen , .
    i put shaving on half where food was and for sleeping and left the waterers on palin cement , they were the dirtiest areas anyway .
    yeah 104 was a bit much , now i hav a big chicken inventory in the freezer, and in another freezer and another freezer.......................[​IMG]
